The Innocence Project of Minnesota relies on the generous support of our volunteers.
We are especially interested in investigative assistance. If you can help us please fill out the Volunteer Application.
One of the best ways to volunteer is to take a course or clinic. We have a greater need for law student volunteers in the summer. Visit the Minnesota Justice Foundation to see how your IPMN volunteer work can be applied to your law school’s goal for pro bono time per student.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please fill out the Volunteer Application. Unfortunately, while we do rely on volunteers, we cannot find work for everyone who offers to help. By letting us know of any special skills you can offer, it makes it easier for us to match you with an appropriate opportunity.
Skills frequently in demand include: accounting, event planning, fundraising, graphic design, investigation, legislative, marketing, public relations, and web development.
We also offer a variety of internship positions – please see our Internships Page for more info.
